WEED OF THE WEEK: Thymeleaf speedwell (Veronica serpyllifolia).
Thymeleaf speedwell is a perennial broadleaf plant. According to Calflora, it is found in western Riverside County. In the home landscape, it is most likely to be found in lawns or the garden. It tends to grow into a dense mat with stems reaching a foot in length. Thymeleaf speedwell has small flowers that range in color from white to pale blue. It reproduces by both seed and rooting stems, so removing it, roots and all, before it forms seeds is an effective control measure. For more information on Thymeleaf speedwell, see the UC IPM website: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/WEEDS/thymeleaf_speedwell.html.
